Volvo Penta Delivers Auxiliary Engine and Emergency Genset

Thursday, August 07, 2003
The new ship, M/S G.O. Sars, which was named after a famous Norwegian zoologist, is advanced, including such features as extreme silent operation, fully comparable in class to military submarines. The auxiliary engine and emergency genset onboard are from Volvo Penta. "Naturally, it is very positive to be chosen as supplier to such a prestigious project," says Jan-Arne Kristoffersen, at Volvo Penta in Norway. "The propulsion engines are outside the range we cover. We are delivering a D25MS for auxiliary power generation and a TAMD103 to power the ship's emergency genset." M/S G.O. Sars will conduct research in the Barents Sea and the Norwegian Sea. The ship runs extremely silent, which provides the possibility to study fish and other marine life without disturbing them. Propulsion is diesel electric, with two silent-running diesel-electric motors driving a 5-blade propeller. The electric motors are powered by three low-rpm diesel engines that, similar to the auxiliary engine, are equipped with extra soundproofing.
